About 450 airport workers submitted a petition this week announcing their intention to form a union and complaining about their treatment.

A two-week strike by armored-truck guards in France that left Paris' automated teller machines empty and people scrambling to find cash came to an end Tuesday. The guards had gone on strike after several holdups that left colleagues dead. On Tuesday, they agreed to accept a "risk premium" of $138 a month--less than the $208 they sought but far more than the initial offer. The deal also includes a pay increase ranging from 1.5% to 5% over two years.

A tentative settlement was reached Wednesday after a one-day strike by security guards that halted about 70% of the loading and unloading of ships in the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. More than 50 security guards belonging to the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union set up picket lines at seven terminals in the Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbor on Tuesday, officials said. Members of other locals of the union refused to cross the picket lines.

Security guards at Los Alamos National Laboratory went on strike Monday and were replaced by non-union workers and supervisors. "The security of the laboratory is not in any jeopardy," said James Breen, a spokesman for the military research complex where the atomic bomb was developed during World War II. The guards walked out in a dispute with their employer, Mason & Hanger-Silas Mason Co., the laboratory's security contractor.
